Embrace your Inner 8 year old

I was recently asked to promote a contest for my local tourism association, Ontario’s Highlands. They are trying to get people to embrace their inner 8 year old by posting photos of how they remember winter as a child.

I immediately threw my snowshoes on and went outside to play in the snow. There is something about playing around on snowshoes that makes me feel like a kid again. I remember the first time I ever wore snowshoes it felt like I was wearing moon shoes! It was so new to me, floating on top of the snow instead of sinking into it waist deep.  I was able to venture farther into the bush and my parents would always know where I was thanks to my tracks.

Needless to say I really enjoyed playing around in the snow with my Journey Snowshoes while my husband played photographer.
